Since the summer of this year, Alldevice has been used to manage maintenance procedures in one of the largest wineries in Bulgaria, Vinex Slavyantsi AD. 

Known for its 90 year history, the winery is the largest Bulgarian wine exporter whose products are sold in Europe, Asia and America. At international and national competitions and exhibitions, the production of Vinex Slavyantsi has won over 200 awards and certificates.

Since the spring of this year, Alldevice CMMS has been used to manage maintenance procedures in the Confectionery Division, part of one of the largest food production complexes in Bulgaria, Zaharni Zavodi AD.

Established in 1912, the company is a leading producer of sugar, confectionery and ethyl alcohol in the country. The group includes several plants - for the production of sugar, for sugar products, for ethanol and high-protein feed, a printing house, its own thermal power plant and a mechanical repair factory.

Alldevice program has taken the maintenance of our equipment to a brand new level

Kliimakaubamaja OÜ, a seller, installer and provider of maintenance of air conditioning equipment and systems, has been using Alldevice equipment maintenance software since 2017 to service customers' equipment and organize the company's activities, which has raised the quality of their work to a new level.

According to Margus Laanemägi, Development and Personnel Manager of Kliimakaubamaja, the company has learnt about the software from a sales call promoting an Estonian-made equipment management program that facilitates the work of employees by consolidating both the completed and unfinished tasks in one place. The advantage is the convenience and simplicity of use, because Alldevice has been created by people who use it on a daily basis.

In the face of the raw materials and supply crisis, the eyes of the Lithuanian industry have once again turned to the topics of digitisation and automation. However, if we look at the real state of innovation in manufacturing, we often find paradoxes such as Excel still being secretly used alongside an expensive new system, sabotage of innovations, and employees' “little internal businesses”. While there is no universal recipe for innovation success, but starting small, human communication and active management involvement can help avoid many failures.

Paradoxically, there is probably just as much human element in manufacturing companies as in the humanities. Not sharing knowledge to protect one’s job, circles of “friendly” suppliers, deliberately switching off wi-fi or data on the phone to sabotage a new app that “doesn't work”, incredible creativity in the "why we don’t need it" argument, or the classic question "will it make me more money?" - all of this will be more or less heard by many in the industry, but it is not talked about in the trendy consultant presentations.

Alldevice maintenance software has great potential

The Maritime Administration of the Transport Department have been using Alldevice work tasks and maintenance management software developed in Estonia for a little over ten months. Mairold Vaik, Chief Specialist and Maritime Safety Manager, is confident that this high-potential software would offer an easy way for all companies and institutions to take control of their maintenance and equipment management by means of a single software, and to meet the requirements imposed by the ISO quality management system.

"Of course, the maintenance management software makes the life of the lazy bitter at first, but it is a great help to the diligent," says Vaik. "The software sheds light on who of the responsible personnel enter the accomplished tasks on a daily basis and who does it as a mere formality. Reccuring failures of each device or piece of equipment also come to the fore, and it is good to analyze the fluctuations of the parameters afterwards on the basis of these data. For each job, the person making the entry must also think about the person who will have to read his or her entry later or take over their job. And there is a specific trail left behind each entry - the login of each person responsible for the job is visible and the list of jobs with a good calendar view also sets priorities for multitaskers. ”

The combination of rapid inflation, supply chain insecurity, a health crisis and unprecedented sanctions is bringing a time of great change for the Western industrial sector, with both money and markets being redistributed. The focus of competition in this turbulence will be "digitalisation for the advanced".

Let me explain. The so-called digital revolution has not been a novelty in the industry for a long time, on the contrary: by 2022, talking about some kind of general digitization will seem simple or unprofessional.

About as universal as the "general flavor" of the endless universe of aromas and flavors of culinary art.

Digitization can mean vastly different worlds by industry, market, company size and stage of development, but in a very broad way, digitization can be divided into stages of development. Namely, the so-called digital revolution is actually an evolution, where three stages can now be drawn.
